Shania Twain Says She's Learned to Own Her Pain and Live In the 'Now'
What Shania Twain fan could look at that top hat, thigh-high boots and full-length black trenchcoat and not remember the sexy seductions of her “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” video?

Twain looks at the stunning outfit, and she remembers something else: pain.

“Videos, especially, are so difficult, really challenging,” the 51-year-old country icon tells People. “Long hours – and you’re not really thinking of the glamour. I just remember the boots were so tight and my legs were all swollen at the end of it. It was just a really, really long day.”

The breathtaking costume, of course, was

CulturePop No. 42 - 'Def Leppard' lead singer Joe Elliott, Pt. 1
Hanging out over coffee with Def Leppard lead singer Joe Elliott at the legendary rock 'n' roll hotel Sunset Marquis was already a great start to our morning -- what made it even better was Elliott himself. Laid-back, charming and happy to riff on any subject we lobbed at him, he talked candidly about rocking out after fifty, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Def Leppard's upcoming tour with Kiss, and plenty more. Given how much we loved talking to his band mate Phil Collen, how can we decide which member of the band was a better guest? We can't and yeah, no reason to do it. They're both awesome -- and Elliott had so much to say, we couldn't bring ourselves to cut him off for some arbitrary time limit. Thus, you get part one and part two of our chat with him (part two will be next week). You're welcome.

Ranking the 10 Best Diamond-Selling Albums By Female Solo Artists

Adele took home every accolade under the sun for her blockbuster sophomore album 21, but she just earned another: The young songstress' album was just certified Diamond, meaning it has sold 10x million copies. The last album to sell 10 million in under two years was 'N Sync's No Strings Attached, which came out in 2000. Wow. You're old.

This got me thinking: There aren't too many female solo acts who've sold 10x million copies of a single album. How do they stack up in quality? I've ranked my picks for the best ten below, and hopefully it'll inspire you to scream and complain. (Note: I haven't included bands with female singers, obviously. Rumours and Tragic Kingdom would surely shake up this list.)

You Really Like Lady Gaga’s ‘Heavy Metal Lover’ … A Lot

Last week we asked you two questions, and the answer to both was Lady Gaga’s “Heavy Metal Lover.” “Lover” took over 51 percent in our poll of your favorite songs of 2011 (so far), and now we can reveal the track also bested “Scheiße,” “Marry the Night” and “You and I” as the song you’d most like to see be her next single.

“Lover” left its competition in the dust, scoring nearly 50 percent of the vote. “Scheiße,” Gaga’s thumping meditation on how powerful women are treated by society, came in second with just over 36 percent.

Our personal choice, “Marry the Night,” came in a distant third, with 10 percent, and the Mutt Lange-produced rock ballad “You and I” brought in only 1.4 percent of the vote. “Marry the Night” was inspired by Gaga’s hometown of New York City and was originally intended as the first single from Born This

New Music Mix: Interview with Simon Curtis, Yelle in Concert and "Born This Way" at Last

Tour News

So summer is just around the corner and the concert season is heating up! Within just these past three weeks since our latest New Music Mix, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to catch Yelle otherwise known as the French equation to Robyn, British musical prodigy James Blake with Active Child, and Swedish indie singer Lykke Li live in concert. All were equally awesome in their own right.

I have not had quite as much fun at a show (probably since first seeing Robyn in concert) as I did when I saw Yelle. Going into Yelle’s show I was only familiar with a few of her songs. The Tepr remix of “A Cause des Garcons” was posted on Perezhilton.com a few years ago and I knew that this gal had something special, especially after the video went so viral.

Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ Album Is Finally Released In Full!

There are 22 new tracks to love! But does it live up to the monster success of ‘The Fame’?

After having a taste of infectious tunes like ‘Judas’ and the title track ‘Born this Way,’ Lady Gaga fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of her full album. While some outlets have given Lady Gaga‘s sophomore effort less than rave reviews, plenty of little monsters are sure to have it on repeat tonight!

The fast-paced and controversial ‘Judas’ reminds us of Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance’ days and the catchy chorus — ‘I’m still in love with Judas, baby’ — will have people singing to themselves.

Mother Monster often looks outward for influence, even channeling 80s Madonna in the super-fun track ‘Bad Kids.’

She takes on Latin music in ‘Americano,’ singing part of it in Spanish. (You’ll also hear French and German in her repertoire.)

And no, iTunes didn’t make a mistake.

Call it a home team advantage, but American critics seem to have nothing but glowing things to say about reigning pop princess Lady Gaga’s latest release, “Born This Way,” which dropped this morning. (European critics weren’t quite as cheery in their reviews of the album last week.) Comparisons with 1980s-era Madonna are rampant – most critics drop at least one Material Girl mention – and an NPR reviewer went as far as to compare Gaga to 1960s-era Bob Dylan.

Shania Twain Opens Up About Painful Divorce & Finding Love Again
Shania Twain went from country music hit maker to tabloid headline fodder when her 14-year marriage suddenly came crashing down. And now, the 45-year-old singer has revealed to Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson brand new painful details about her ex-husband's alleged betrayal, and how she discovered the tragic news.

Shania Twain Might Never Sing Again?!

Shania Twain Might Never Sing Again?!
Shania Twain has been speaking out lately, but more noticeably, she hasn't been doing any singing. And there's a reason for that. "I had reached a point in my life where there was a bottleneck, physically, in my throat," she said in a sit-down with E! News Thursday. "Something had to give." It turned out that years of suppressing and repressing her voice—and emotions—had damaged her vocal cords, and a condition called dysphonia, literally a difficulty in speaking, manifested itself when the proverbial stuff hit the fan with ex-hubby Mutt Lange. "I've only just discovered what's wrong," Twain, who recently remarried, said. "Next comes rehabilitation,...

Shania Twain on ex Mutt Lange: 'I have never felt so betrayed'

  • Pop2it
In a Tuesday (May 3) visit to "The Oprah Winfrey Show," Shania Twain opened up about the betrayal she felt when she learned that Mutt Lange -- now her ex-husband -- was having an affair with her best friend, Marie-Anne Thiebaud.

"I lost my sense of trust, honesty and compassion," said Twain. "I crashed down and became what I consider an emotional mess. I've never been so miserable in my whole life. I just wanted to go to bed and never get up."

In an unforeseeable twist, Twain actually ended up marrying Thiebaud's ex-husband, Frederic Thiebaud.

"It was twisted," she admitted, "but so beautifully twisted. I really can't complain. I've got a beautiful man."

Twain details the dissolution of her marriage in her new book, "From This Moment On." She also details sexual abuse at the hands of her stepfather.
